Favors

Instead of a favor....

Has anyone made a donation to a charity in lieu of favors? What did you do for the guests to let them know?

    I am not a fan, but there is a sticky about this topic directly above your post if you want some other viewpoints. For me, I feel that if you want to donate to a charity, do so. Do not associate it with your wedding. If you choose to spend that money on a charity and not on favors, just do it, but do not tell people you're donating in lieu of favors. You don't tell people "Hey, I decided not to give you a gift and gave the money to X." Would you donate to a charity in lieu of your flowers?  If so, I'd be impressed by that info, but not that you gave up something for your guests. 
    What did you think would happen if you walked up to a group of internet strangers and told them to get shoehorned by their lady doc?~StageManager14
